I am working "behind the scenes" on other posts on 1 Timothy 2, but thought I would throw together a quick post for today. Here is a quick, cheap, healthy, and good dinner idea. I apologize that there are not exact measurements, but that is the way I often cook! Hopefully this will give you enough info to use!
Roasted Chicken and Vegetables:
You will need a whole chicken, around 4 lbs. Wash the chicken (after taking the lovely innards out), pat dry, and place in a 9" x 13" pan. In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 tsp. garlic salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp thyme, 1/2 tsp onion powder....or, really...whatever spices you like! I change it around all the time. Loosen the skin of the chicken and rub the spices all over the chicken UNDER the skin. Chop up an onion and distribute around chicken. Chop up as much potatoes, carrots, and celery as you need for your family and place around chicken. Pour 1 cup chicken broth over veggies; sprinkle chicken and veggies with sea salt and Mrs. Dash (this is what I do; feel free to use whatever seasonings you prefer).
Cover tightly with foil and roast at 325 degrees for about 2 hours. I had to be out of the house last time I made this, and was able to cook it at 300 for 3 hours or so.
Enjoy feeding your family!
